Jennifer Lawrence Slayed At a Living Reading of ‘The Big Lebowski’
see it here
In our continued effort to chart and archive every single thing Jennifer Lawrence ever does (because, as The Police say, it is magic), here's a story about the actor joining a bunch of other famous actors on stage in Montreal for a live reading of The Big Lebowski. Director Jason Reitman brought his famed live read sessions—where he recruits a bunch of thespians to read classic scripts in front of a live audience—to Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy festival. In a stroke of good fortune, Montreal is also the city where Lawrence is shooting X-Men: Apocalypse so she surprised the crowd when she appeared on stage to perform the role of Maude, memorably played in the film by Julianne Moore.
Lawrence was joined by her X-Men costar Michael Fassbender, who showed up in a bathrobe to play The Dude (and apparently went method by smoking what may have been actual weed), as well as Patton Oswalt as Walt, Martin Starr as Jesus, X-Men costar Olivia Munn as Bunny, our pal T.J. Miller as Brant, and Mae Whitman as Donny.
A spy at the event managed to capture some video that is actually audio of Lawrence delivering Maude's sexually charged opening lines about coituwith characteristic gusto. Listen to it below.
